this was intriguing. we've obviously, since the tragedy of sandy hook elementary, a lot of talk about gun control and what can be done. president obama talking about it publicly and emotionally. here's president obama with david gregory yesterday talking about guns. let's come back and we'll quickly talk about it. >> here's the bottom line. we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so, this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. with public opinion, there's nothing you can't do, and without public opinion, there's very little you can get done in this town. >> so, i like that because it's a recognition of the facts, which is that politicians tend to be a reactive, rather than a proactive species, even the president of the united states. so, let's talk about his public opinion point. where is public opinion? it's moved a little bit on guns, but how much has it moved? >> marginally. you saw pew had their poll out where it went from like 42% to 49% -- >> in terms of people supporting stricter -- >> right, exactly. >> yeah. >>
, of course, is can the outrage following sandy hook be sustained? i want to show a graphic that talks about sort of how we've covered these events immediately after they've happened. not just the sandy hook shooting, but the previous shooting of gabby giffords, et cetera, and this washington post graphic actually shows new stories about gun control. the aurora shooting and the representative gabby giffords shooting, but if you look at that kufsh, it quickly falls off in the weeks thereafter. as horrible assist sandy hook was, is there any chance with all the other news with the fess cal cliff, with everything else that, we can sustain the level of outrage long enough for a task force to produce legislation that can pass? >> i think if it was ever going to happen, it will happen now. we're seeing things we have never seen the president do, and we're seeing thing in congress we haven't seen quite at this level. i mean, the president for the first time in his entire time in the white house is actually talking about gun control, period. that alone is progress. the only things he has done to dat
sandy, they are upsiding the surveillance bill, they are not doing anything on the fiscal cliff. is it helpful to have john boehner have his members back in d.c. running their mouths and offering opinions to all us reporters, i think the answer is no. >> no inclination the $250,000 or below can pass through the senate right now, kay bailey hutchison said she wouldn't support that type of bill. what's harry reid left to do right now? >> i'm not sure $250,000 could get through the house or senate at this point. republicans are signaling, as kay bailey hutchison just did, they want to move to $500,000. i think that would be a tough lift considering president obama offered $400,000 with $2 trillion in deficit reduction. >> from where you sit right now, i mean, you're so into the house gop, jake, i'm surprised you didn't end up in boehner's suitcase, we look like we're going over. >> it looks like that's the case and that's what gop aides are telling us today, it's very difficult and democrats are saying this too, it's difficult to see a way we avert the fiscal cliff at this point wi
that the end of the year has seen the hurricane sandy issues and hit with that and also in the news cycle, massacre in newtown? peoples' spirits might be on the downside. >> right. to be quite frank, i mean, america's emotionally spent and i don't think they necessarily feel that they want to spend money on themselves. given everything that's been happening. rather give that money to people in need. >> seeing a spike in donations, contributions, charitable contributions? >> i think people are taking that money and donating it to chair it ritable contributions don't feel like spending. >> talk about the fiscal cliff. the uncertainty to witness ticking down to the end of the year and the, you know, people say that we might be borrowing from the future to think about the paychecks but basically people across the country have to consider the fact that the paychecks might take a hit at the first of the year. >> right. absolutely. hampton was on earlier talking about what will happen to those paychecks in terms of paychecks if we go over the fiscal cliff and a real concern here f. you look at t
